Sunderland Engagement Shoot – Amy and Mark

Sunderland Engagement Shoot – Amy and Mark

If you love golden light, beaches and blossom, you’ll love this fun Engagement shoot in Roker Park, Sunderland!

 

Amy and Mark are getting married at Ramside Hall Hotel in Durham, later this year. They chose Roker Park for their engagement session because it’s close to their home.  It’s a gorgeous park, right next to the beach in Sunderland. There are so many great locations in Roker Park.  There are lots of lovely trees in the park with early blossom, boating lakes or even the beach!  It had been raining all day, but the sun decided to come out just as we started, which gave us some amazing golden light!

The Engagement session took place in late afternoon in March, just after a rain storm.  And the light really was spectacular!  Amy and Mark totally smashed this photo session – you couldn’t tell that they were nervous at all!  They are the most perfect couple, and I can’t wait to shoot their wedding now!!

NORTHUMBERLAND ENGAGEMENT SHOOT AT HEALEY HALL – EMILY AND GARY

I’VE RECENTLY UPDATED MY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY PACKAGES. YOU CAN NOW GET ONE OF THESE FAB ENGAGEMENT SHOOTS IN MY FULL SHEBANG PACKAGE.

A super fun, winter engagement shoot Healey Hall, Northumberland.  If you’re like most of my couples, and a little bit unsure about having your photos taken.  If you feel a bit awkward in front of the camera, then you’re not alone!  Most couples book me for my laid-back, fun approach.  I’m someone who makes them feel at ease about being photographed!  I love to photograph Engagement shoots like this, because it gives you the chance to get used to being photographed before the big day.  You can always use the photos on Save the Date cards too!

Gary and Emily chose Healey Hall for their Engagement shoot because they will be staying there for their wedding at Healey Barn in September.  What a lush couple they are together!  I knew we were going to get some amazing shots because they didn’t stop smiling and laughing at each other the whole time!  So, we had a wander about, exploring the gardens of Healey Hall.  Its an impressive building.  Gary and Emily very quickly got into the swing of being photographed, and they relaxed completely.  We got some hilarious photos of the two of them laughing and joking around.  Having a laugh as they do normally. 

Gary and Emily have chosen me to be their wedding photographer, for their wedding at Healey Barn in Northumberland in September.  Healey Barn is a beautiful location, just north west of Newcastle, near Corbridge, and I can’t wait to be their wedding photographer – I think it’s going to be an amazing wedding!

Newcastle Engagement Shoot – Mike and Emily

Newcastle Engagement Shoot – Mike and Emily

A gorgeous, winter engagement shoot in Jesmond Dene, Newcastle.  As part of my wedding photography package, I offer an engagement shoot.  I like to get to know my couples.  If you’re like me, and a little bit nervous and awkward in front of the camera, having an engagement shoot is the perfect way to relax and have fun!  Engagement shoots are an ideal way to get used to being photographed before the big day.

Mike and Emily chose me because of my relaxed style. They knew as soon as they arrived in Jesmond Dene, that I wasn’t going to force them into awkward poses or cheesy stances.  I rather ask that couples are themselves.   So, we had a wander about, exploring the pathways in Jesmond Dene.  Mike and Emily very quickly got into the swing of being photographed, and they relaxed completely.  We got some hilarious photos of the two of them laughing and joking around.  Having fun as they do normally.  It was quite late in the afternoon when we met, and with it being winter, the sun set really quickly!  Boy!  It got dark really quickly too; but that made for some beautiful atmospheric photos at sunset along the Armstrong Bridge!

Mike and Emily have chosen me to be their north east wedding photographer, for their wedding at the Alnwick Treehouse in Northumberland next year.  Alnwick is a beautiful location, just north of Newcastle, and I can’t wait to be their wedding photographer – I think it’s going to be a gorgeous wedding!

If you are like Mike and Emily, and would like to book me for an engagement shoot or a relaxed wedding, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Fun Engagement Session on the Beach at Littlehaven, South Shields – Annalise and David

If you love sand dunes and lighthouses, you’ll love this fun Engagement Session on the beach at Littlehaven in South Shields!

Annalise and David are getting married at the Littlehaven Hotel in South Shields, so the beach right next to their venue was the perfect choice for their Engagement Session.  It’s a gorgeous beach, with sand dunes and a really distinctive red lighthouse that’s a famous local landmark.  The photos from this Engagement session are going to be used for the Save The Date Cards as well, which is a brilliant idea.

The Engagement session took place in late afternoon in September, and the light was spectacular!  Annalise and David totally smashed this photo session – you really couldn’t tell that they were nervous at all!  They are the most perfect couple, and I can’t wait to shoot their wedding now!!

Saltburn engagement shoot – Sam and Craig

Saltburn engagement shoot – Sam and Craig

 

Saltburn Engagement Shoot by north east wedding photographer.

Sam and Craig chose lovely Saltburn beach for their engagement shoot.  Its a place they often go.  So it seemed like the obvious choice for a relaxed and fun engagement photo shoot.  Let’s face it, it is a bit weird having your photo taken!  That’s why I love meeting couples before the big day for a practice shoot.  We have a bit of a laugh, go for a wander wherever the mood takes us.  And all the nerves about being in front of the camera soon disappear.  Its great on the wedding day when we can just pick up where we left off, and capture some amazing images of the two of you together.  I was amazed with the new funky coloured beach huts they have along Saltburn promenade, they look so cool!  The beach is amazing and there’s an old Pier too!

Sam and Craig are an amazing couple and I can’t wait to be their north east wedding photographer.  They’re having an outdoor hand-fasting ceremony at Ormesby Hall near Middlesbrough at the weekend!!!  I think it’s going to be an epic wedding!

If you’re a fun, relaxed couple like Craig and Sam and would like to book me for an engagement shoot or a wedding, please get in touch!!

 

A Durham Engagement Shoot in the snow – Emma and Richie

A Durham Engagement Shoot in the snow – Emma and Richie

Emma and Richie chose to have their Pre-Wedding Engagement photo shoot in beautiful Durham – well I would say that because that’s where I live!!  They chose Durham because Richie popped “the question”, on Old Elvet Bridge, so thats where we started!  I like to keep things really relaxed and to have a bit of fun, capturing the in-between giggles and smiles along the way.  We had a wander about the town, down onto the river banks, and along through the woods.  The weather was freezing and snowy, but that didn’t really matter!  More opportunities for cuddling up close and keeping each other warm!  We ended up in the Cathedral Cloisters, where the first Harry Potter was filmed!  I’m really looking forward to photographing the Wedding at Horton Grange later this year!
